Blue Chip NFTs to Dress the New Cards
The facades of the new Hi Mastercard will feature NFT avatars from collections such as Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Moonbirds and more. In order for a user to qualify for the exclusive NFT card, their ownership of specified NFT must first be verified. The unique card designs will certainly stand out from the crowd, and serve as a physical badge denoting the holder’s investment in the Web 3.0 community.
Naturally, the funds held in the NFT-glossed card can be spent in a variety of ways, and will support both crypto and fiat currencies, including most popular stablecoins. Co-Founder of Hi Sean Rach is confident that the groundbreaking NFT card will be appreciated by customers: “The flexibility to spend fiat, stablecoins or other crypto, combined with attractive financial and lifestyle rewards, makes us confident that our card is a game-changer in the market.”
How to Obtain a Hi NFT Mastercard
The Hi app presents six different ways to obtain the new NFT Mastercard, typically relating to the form of membership held by a given customer. A user’s membership level is largely determined by the quantity of Hi’s native crypto currency, the Hi Dollar (HI), they have staked.
At the time of writing, the minimum required Hi Dollar (HI) stake amount is less than $10 worth, which makes joining the community-based banking app readily accessible for budding and veteran NFT enthusiasts alike. Other benefits of the programs offered by Hi include up to 10% cashback on spending, and rebates on digital subscriptions.
At press time, Hi’s native Hi Dollar (HI) token trades at $0.051503, according to CoinGecko. The $HI token has scored impressive gains of 20.4% over the last 7 days, notching 3.7% in the last 24 hours. As the project continues to expand, Hi aims to provide financial freedom to at least 1 billion users worldwide.
